  • This is the first overlook you come to - WOW! Stunning view. There's not a big walk to this one either. There's a generous parking lot & pit toilets as well.

  • At the narrowest point along the top of the canyon, right near Tomichi Point, the distance between the canyon walls measures about 1100-feet across, but narrows to just 40-feet near the riverbed far below. If you are well skilled, looking for an adventure, and planning a hiking trip to the bottom of the canyon, this is one of the three trails that will get you there. It is considered the steepest route, but it has nice views. Dogs are allowed on this trail; this is not so with the others. Tomichi Point is right near the Visitor Center, and one of the first viewpoints along the South Rim Road. We enjoyed the canyon from this vantage point.
